broke but happy

after months of lurking at the studio calico site, i finally ordered my first kit. i got the main kit for july, via airmail and two add-on kits, venice and stockholm. i was also thinking of getting tokyo but i stopped myself and closed the browser. i will be broke next month but don't you think these beauties are worth it? i just hope it won't go through the post office. i'm worried they might have additional custom charges. anyone have a suggestion how to get past this?

last week, after checking my mailbox almost everyday and pestering the lobby guard, the paper lot i won from ebay finalyy arrived. i actually woke up early to pick up the package from the post office. there were some duplicate sheets, some designs i didn't like and were old. but all in all, it was good mix of papers and i think it was a good buy - almost 75% less than the cost of papers here.

and as if that wasn't enough, i got 3 scrapbook magazines in booksale in moa for a 100 bucks each. these are 2-3 months old so i think i got a good deal. then, the other day, i got a black notebook (i don't have any idea what to do with it yet) and some pastel gel pens from this new store in megamall. ooh, this should stop.

beverly todd is having a countdwon for forty days until her 40th birthday celebration. and for the next 40 days, she will be having some fun games and giveaways. you might want to join in the celebration here.
finally, i came from church today and heard a wonderful sermon. our pastor shared an email encouraging one woman who was discouraged at work. anyway, one of the lines that struck me was about how we have been given shoulders and burdens. we should be praying not for lighter burdens but stronger shoulders. have a great week ahead everyone.
